The product is mold and mildew resistant. I even use it to seal out spots where insects like hornets can get into small holes to build nests.
I have had it shrink quite a bit and I deducted one star for that issue. It just makes me seal some larger areas more than once.
I have never had it shrink, the most important thing to remember is to use it generously enough to fill the gap that you are trying to seal up.
DAP works well but can be found cheaper than the 6 dollars here (around 4 bucks) at the major home improvement box stores.
...Possibly very little. May have to do with the amount of silicone contained in each.
I understand (maybe incorrectly) that "230" grade implies 50-yr. durability - which in itself is a joke.
I'm a homeowner, and have been using the white Alex Ultra 230 stuff (available from Lowe's at about 4 bucks a pop as of this writing) outside on my house on some projects since early Spring up to now, and I really like it because I'm fussy and can work it for a long time before it starts to gel.
It obviously is mostly latex with some silicone (doesn't say on the tube), and has a 50-yr. guarantee (DAP seems to be pretty proud of the stuff).
This particular version is very watery, and takes several days to properly cure (in the summer heat) before painting is advisable. Paint it too early, and you have a royal mess on your hands. That "2-4 hour" claim is another joke.
It shrinks like crazy as well. I've reapplied in places to get full, complete coverage. The nature of the beast - that moisture has to go somewhere, and when it does, you got shrinkage.
But...again I personally like this watery stuff (whatever the version or brand) because I can really smooth it out and force it into a long crack with my fingertip and make it neat without it gelling up on me so fast (from the silicone content) and making a mess. I can go back and rework areas.
I have the luxury as a homeowner of doing this - of really taking my time and working this stuff into cracks and of waiting on it to fully cure before painting. You may not be into that drill.
But get this - if you apply ANY caulk over dirt, it AIN'T GONNA STICK LONG TERM!Read more ›
